This audiobook is thoroughly enjoyable, but as with the novel, utterly depressing. Bleak and lacking hope. Perfect. The reading quality is excellent.
A must listen if you've never read or heard the book before.
Very thought provoking and introspective perspective of our society. Audio book brings to life, the characters thoughts, as if you were experiencing the events yourself. Did I generate this thought, or was it supplanted?...Lol This book is a very fun ear read.
Much of what Orwell foretold in this tale has already come to pass. Hopefully this is not the future we are destined for. Great read, I will be recommending 1984 to everyone I can.
I've heard so many amazing reviews about the book, and as it is such a classic novel the thing that bought for me was the performance, which made the book very engaging and lively..you can feel that you are very connected with the characters and the story.
Overall, that was a spectacular experience and the narration of Simon Prebble is phenomenal, enjoyed it.
Yes. I love the narrator's voice and the plot
I'm obsessed with this book. This is the best audio book I have listened to so far.
Everything about this book was amazing: disturbing content, clear story line, spot-on imagery... But the narrator truly makes for an unforgettable experience. I highly implore anyone who has difficulty listening to a book unless they love the narrator to seriously consider this one. You won't be disappointed.
Story was dry and I didn't find it entertaining. Perhaps this book is better meant for a literature class with deeper analysis rather than for leisure reading. Perhaps I just didn't get the significance of the whole "big brother" thing. I did enjoy reading Orwell's Animal Farm, but 1984 was disappointing and I wouldn't recommend it.
